I got a 7% raise this year for a non-promo year. So I guess you’re doing pretty well

M1 and been here 5 years, my lowest raise was 10% for my first year and highest was 40% this year (but no raise last year due to COVID and non promo). Bonuses from like 2k as an A1 to 10k + 28k manager bonus

That’s awesome! I’m in financial services tax but get nothing special. 🤷🏻‍♂️

I got 12% for my first raise and then obviously Covid screwed with everything and I got 12.5% in a promo year. However, I think mid-tier firms start at more so for reference I’m a senior making $67k in MCOL; I know it’s awful pls don’t rub it in my face

I wanted to apply for credit cards to get bonus points. My credit scores are 799 with equifax and 798 with TransUnion. Have 4 hard inquiries still on the record. My application for the amazon credit card got declined last March when my score was a bit lower and got ~6 hard inquiries. Personally I think it sucks that we won't find out if the credit card application is accepted or declined until the credit is hard pulled. Is there a more reliable way to be sure of the application being accepted?
